    Yeah actually those aren't very good speaker terminations on the wall.

    Check out the speaker wire.


    As to the interconnects, I've seen some pretty amazing rooms with just a stereo setup and they run the interconnects a long way to amps in the front of the room with the speakers and keep the speaker wire, short.

    I can't stand faceplate's that scream, "Look at me, Look at me!". I would have at least painted the faceplate's to match the wall coloring. Also, In the past I've been involved with some custom homes structure cabling/network projects. I've installed faceplate's and electrical outlets on the floor where speakers and such would be installed. This can only be accomplished when a customer has a permanent design in mind. Looks fantastic with nothing coming out of the walls.

    That's a good point, JCOS. I put all mine together behind the main unit. I'm not sure why for instance, the surrounds are way out on the wall unless it's to help the guy remember what's what?

    I found it at another forum and really liked it.

    I like the stereo cabinet and in the wall storage for DVDs and CDs.
